M Targets are designed with an extended base to aid in removal after the test cycle. The Black KAPTON® allows the reflector to be picked up by providing its own contrast and not relying on the substrate (great for testing white objects). The M Series uses a .002″ SILICONE pressure sensitive adhesive (psa).
This series should withstand a thermal cycle of ±300°F.
MA Targets have the same structure as the M series , but the A denotes a .002″ ACRYLIC psa.
The MA targets should work within a ±300°F thermal cycle as well as pass the NASA out gassing test. The ACRYLIC PSA we use is listed on the NASA Data for accepted out gassing Adhesives.
Choose Your Own Spacing per Roll
Both the M and MA targets can be pre-spaced in rolls of 1000 with a spacing of your choosing. The targets are applied in strips. The carrier liner is burnished to adhere the targets to the substrate, then the carrier liner can be removed (with a low angle of peel). Leaving the targets pre-spaced on the structure.
Retroreflectors are available from 3/16″ through 1″ in size.
Metric retroreflectors are available from 3 mm through 25 mm.
Custom retroreflector size varitations are available within the M and MA series. To designate the retroreflective material that allows the target to function at 500°F add an “H” (i.e. M becomes MH and MA becomes MAH).
